Kat Cearns Art

Growing up on Vancou-
ver Island has instilled in
me an intense love for
the life that surrounds us
here. A naturally
observant person, I find
myself stopping every
20 feet on a walk in the
woods or at the shore to
take a closer look at a
little mushroom, or the
roots of a tree, or if I’m
lucky, an owl up in a
branch. This appreciation
for flora and fauna is
reflected in my paint-
ings. I focus on colour,
movement and light to
create a story in each
image. Painting is what
makes me happy and
I love when I can use
my art to share that
happiness with others.

Ethan Taylor Designs By Ellen Atkinson

Only She Who Attempts
The Absurd Can Achieve
The Impossible

To say that we are a product of our environment is very
true for me. I was born in Williams Lake and grew up on
a hunting lodge in the interior of B.C.
My dad, a hunter, was a man of few words but with a
true talent for creating and improvising. I watched him
work in his tool shed, a memory that I still hold dear.
My mother, who would sew our clothes, can our food,
cook and clean (without electricity or running water)
still had time to read aloud to my father every after-
noon. Both unknowingly taught me to use what you
have, make what you need and take time for family.
I have done many trades and crafts but Sterling silver is
my home. I keep a photo of my dad beside my bench to
keep me grounded and as a reminder of where I came
from. I am grateful each and every day for what I have
and what I can give. Each piece I create is one of a kind,
made with love and full of spirit.

Fiddlestick

Pottery

By Jackie Walker
& Ruth Cook

Fiddlestick Pottery started
a few years ago with the
unexpected receipt of a
kiln. We both have
gardens and decided to try
making something for our
own gardens, and to give
away as Christmas gifts to
family and friends.
Requests soon arrived for
more, and Fiddlestick
Pottery went into
production.

Fiddlesticks can add
interest to plants such
as ferns, hostas and
grasses, or can
brighten up an
empty spot in the
garden.

Paintings by Doug

Doug Giebelhaus was born in Edmonton
Alberta Canada. He started painting in water
colors while living in Edmonton in the early
1990's then switched to acrylics shortly after. He
has studied Acrylic Painting and Design at the
University of Alberta. In 2000 Doug moved to
Parksville, Vancouver Island, B.C. and continued
developing his style as a Figurative Acrylic
painter. He likes to use his digital camera to
capture meaningful moments in time of people in
real life situations or events and turn them into
paintings. Some of Doug's influences are "John
Singer Sargent" and "Pino Daeni".

Emma Henry - Featured young artist 2019

We are very excited to invite featured young artist Emma Henry from
Langley to participate in this year’s Art in the Garden! Emma is only 16 years
old and currently goes to school at Brookswood Secondary in Langley. My
love for art started back in grade six when I decided to attempt to draw an
eagle. I was surprised to find that it looked remotely similar to the photo so I
kept going. I practiced and soon started to draw in colour. I experimented
with oil and chalk pastels, water colour, oil paints, acrylics and even spray
paint but I settled on my pencil crayons. I mostly do realism art of wildlife
and animals. Some I do for fun. Some are commissions. Some for shows like
this. I plan to take my art to Emily Carr and hopefully keep going.

Anchored by Arlene

I have always had a passion for crafts
and have made signs and other
painted items for years for FAMILY
AND FRIENDS and they encouraged
me to start selling them. We started
making small boat shelves and they
took off. We have evolved and we now
make 6 and 7 foot boat shelves... some
with wine racks and some without. I
also love to make things with pallets
such as signs and have done lots of
furniture for clients that are nautically
themed. My passion is of course FISH-
ING and anything to do with the
OCEAN that surrounds us.

LIVE - LOVE AND INSPIRED ON
VANCOUVER ISLAND

THANKFUL EVERYDAY for all the support from
everyone for allowing me to DO WHAT I LOVE.

Janet McDonald Art

THE MAGIC IS IN THE MOMENT.
My mission as an artist is to
remind us to seek the beauty in
the moments of our lives. I love
to paint people lost in a moment
as this is where the energy and
magic of life reside.

I BELIEVE IN PROTECTING OUR
NATURAL WORLD. I also paint
the natural world to remind us
of the beauty that we need to
actively protect. Like the ripples
from a stone thrown into a
pond, the effect of what we do
on a daily basis (or don’t do)
has an impact on mother earth
and her inhabitants. What will
your impact be?

Janet McDonald works in acrylic and oils
depending on her subject matter and objectives.
She loves the buttery feel and blend-ability of oils
and the brilliance of the acrylic colours and their
quick-dry nature. Colour, light and texture are all
elements she is especially fond of using, to
support her paintings’ concepts and are strong
components of her unique style.

Rubius Glass

Glass has captured the imagination
and been used to make beautiful
creations since the birth of
civilization. My sculptures are a
combination of my love of
mythology and fantasy with my
appreciation for the majesty and
complexity of nature. The process
of sculpting a glowing molten blob
into a dryad or dragon takes
patience, planning and daring
enough to get up close and personal
with your torch. My reward is the
joy of creating new forms and
expressions in the dazzling colours
made possible by the variable trans-
lucency of the medium. I also enjoy
the challenge of making custom
characters upon request. I am
grateful for the opportunity to
create each day and share my
miniature creatures with the world.
